Basic Camera 1

In this course, students go far beyond the “Auto” mode and learn the foundational principles of photography. Instructors lead them through the essentials of focus, f-stops, shutter speeds, sensor speed (ISO) and their relationships, placing artistic creativity in the hands of professionals and beginners alike. Students explore depth of field and its effect on the visual message, how shutter speed can aide in image interpretation, and learn how to choose the right camera menus, as well as the best file choice for any given situation.

You’ll learn what all those knobs and dials on your camera do, go through the basics of camera settings and what settings to use in any lighting condition. We’ll explain the difference between simple Point & Shoot cameras and DSLRs (full size cameras with changeable lenses) and what kind to buy if you don’t already have one.  Either camera you have, you’ll leave this crash course with a better knowledge of how your camera works.

Don’t miss out on life’s great moments and start having fun shooting whatever you like!  Just bring your camera, something to take notes on, and a snack or drink.
